    Generally, all income earned during marriage is community property. This would include your 401k. The lots purchased during marriage are also community property unless purchased with separate property funds or transmuted to separate property via deed or other writing. These issues warrant a more detailed analysis with a family law attorney.

    Maggie’s Answer

    You need to consult with an experienced Family Law Attorney to discuss the specifics of your case. Each custody case is resolved based on the specific facts of each case and considering what custodial award is in the best interest of the child. Based on the complex facts in your case, a further more detailed discussion is warranted and cannot be adequately addressed in this forum.
